    Let us spray
     
    Let us spray
    For we know no other way to travel
    than the wet road way

    Let us spray
    Let us aquaplane
    Let us thrash our wheels through a wash
    of wicked water
    Let us squint through a screen of grey

    Let us spray
    Though we endanger
    Our companions on the sluicing skid-surface
    Let us spray
    between their dazzling foglights
    and their indistinct headlights
    Let us spray
    through the terror of dabbed brakelights
    and the torment of the torrent
    Let us spray

    O blackened cloud protect us
    Let us spray
    O dreadful deluge purge us
    Let us spray
    O glassy tarmac shift us
    Let us spray

    -- today, my first M62 journey since the walk. Good to reaquaint myself with the road on a 200-mile round trip. But... it was very wet.
